Socialize, Gather, and Learn

Assalaamu ‘Alaikum ISBUers!

InshaAllah, everyone had an opportunity to attend some, if not all of the events, of Boston University’s Islam Awareness Week! Now it’s time to give you the low down on what else if going on around town. So please, be it via planners, blackberries, or iPhones, take note and spread the word!

1. The Harvard Muslim Law Student’s Association and The Harvard Islamic Society are proud to present A Talk by Congressman Keith Ellison tonight, March 28th from 3pm to 4pm in the Ames Court Room of Austin Hall at the Harvard Law School. Please be on time as doors will close exactly at 3pm and please bring your university ID as non-students will need to gain permission to enter the talk. If you are a non-student, please e-mail

This talk is especially important as Keith Ellison recently testified at the Congressional hearings on radicalization of American Muslims. Congressman Ellison is a US Representative from Minnesota and the FIRST Muslim-American to serve in Congress.

2. If you happen to miss the talk by Keith Ellison at Harvard, you can catch him at ISBCC March 28th. Congressman Ellison will be sharing some informal reflections after Maghrib prayer which is at 6:50pm. ISBCC is located at 100 Malcolm X Boulevard, Roxbury, MA 02120.

3. The Bukhari Institute is proud to present Tranquility Amidst Turbulence: How the Prophet handled Turmoil by Habib Umar bin Hafiz on April 2nd, 2011 from 7:30pm to 9:30pm at ISBCC (100 Malcolm X Boulevard, Roxbury, MA 02120).
